2019 Fantasy Football Devy Week 7 in Review


Welcome to the 2019 Fantasy Football Devy Week 7 in Review!

Each week the focus will be on two to three Devy players at each position and their key performances of the week.

This week will focus on some breakout performances for some players that we have not touched on yet in any of the weekly reviews.

For those not familiar with Devy leagues, take a look back at the Quarterback, Running Backs and Wide Receivers Devy Rankings for a bit of an explanation to the leagues.

2019 Fantasy Football Devy Week 7 In Review


Justin Herbert, Oregon

If you listened to all the hype that surrounds Herbert, one would think he is having a down year, but the truth is, he does nothing but perform week in and week out. He threw for 216 yards with two touchdowns in a blowout win against Colorado. Herbert’s completion percentage (56.3%) could use some work, but the key stat is his 17:1 TD to INT ratio. Herbert protects the ball as well as anyone in the country, and that is something the scouts love.

Tyler Huntley, Utah

Huntley was very efficient on Saturday, going 14/17 with 247 yards & 2 TDs.   Huntley will not blow you away with his stats (12 total TDs), but he is an accurate game manager (0 INTs) who will make the athletic play when needed. He has the Utes ranked, and with continued stellar play, and a good combine, Huntley should hear his name called on draft day.

Running Backs

Ke’Shawn Vaughn, Vanderbilt

Vaughn rushed for 140 yards on 15 attempts, punching two of them across the goal line.  Despite playing for a terrible Vandy team, Vaughn has rushed for over at least 130 yards in a game three times this season with five touchdowns on the year. Defenses have been able to key in on Vaughn because of the team around him, but he has flashed his quickness and agility on multiple occasions showing that he belongs in the draft talk among the elite RBs.

Lynn Bowden Jr. Kentucky

Traditionally a WR, this was a bit of a weird game for Bowden as he played QB as well as RB for Kentucky.  He completed 7/11 passes for 78 yards and a touchdown as well as rushing for 196 yards and two touchdowns.  Bowden’s athleticism & versatility that scouts love was on full display this game, flashing both his arm and his speed.  Bowden can play multiple positions and projects as a do it all gadget type of player in the NFL.  In the right offense, Bowden can be something special at the next level.

Wide Receivers

Trishton Jackson, Syracuse

Jackson is finally healthy, and finally playing well after his transfer from Michigan State. The talented WR has four touchdowns and at least six receptions in each of his last three games. He caught nine balls for 106 yards and a TD in the loss to NC State on Saturday. The once four-star recruit is playing his way back into the draft talk and has all the tools to be a successful WR at the next level.

Kyle Pitts, Florida

It is time that we start to talk about Kyle Pitts.  Pitts has quietly but together a good season but broke out in a big way on the nation stage Saturday night. Pitts hauled in five catches for 108 yards against a stout LSU defense. He has caught at least four balls in each game this season and has gone over 60 yards in four of the five games. Pitts is very athletic for his size (6’6″, 239 lbs) and it would not surprise me at all if we are talking about Pitts as one of, if not the top TE in the 2021 class.

News and Notes:

A few players to keep an eye on that very well may end up in this article in future weeks:
